"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

New month - new linocut

Print no 2 in my attempt to make 15 new prints in 30 weeks for my upcoming Solo show at the Abbott Hall Gallery in Kendal next March. After cutting away the white areas, colour 1 is a pale cream. Unusually at this stage there is maybe just enough information visible in the print for someone familiar with Yorkshire's crumbling relics to recognise the location.

Colour 2 is a pale grey.

Colour 3, blue and still wet hence the shine from the camera flash.

Colour 4, the first green.

Colour 5. A darker version of the first cream colour. The location is definitely recognisable now.

Colour 6. A pale purple grey colour.

Colour 7. A second green.

Two more greens and a final dark should see it finished.
